Default Bass fishing

Stayed up at the lake all weekend to do some post spawn bass fishing. The bite was pretty good Friday evening ahead of the cold front. I caught lots of fish but no really big ones with the largest 3.1 lbs. I had another 5 fish in the 2 lb range, so it was a good evening of fishing.

Saturday AM was a wash out and the afternoon was very windy but I manage to catch three 2.5 pounders and had two broke off that would have been real good fish. One got in the trolling motor and the other wrapped in a stump.

I made up for it a little Sunday AM with a 4.1 and a 3.11 and several in the 2-3 range. Overall it was a good weekend.

I have some pics on the phone I will have to figure out how to get them on the computer.

No they are just coming off the beds. The TVA has changed the timing on bringing the lakes up to summer pool. The bass used to bed in the shallow weeds but they changed the timing on raising the lake because of flooding a few years ago.

This weekend the water was up for the first time and the bass are feeding hard in the weeds. I love bass fishing this time of year because the water temps are better for the big boys to stay shallow. Once summer gets here yhey move out to the deeper water and get a little harder to find.
